Advent: Day 10

Isaiah 26:9 I look for you during the night,
my spirit within me seeks you at dawn,
for when your judgments come upon the earth,
those who live in the world learn about justice.

Something about a sunrise gives you the entitlement to stop and stare, to be still for a moment. The beautiful sunrises and sunsets over the Okavango seem to give even more entitlement than most. There's something about those wee hours of the morning and when the day hasn't quite begun that get the brain working overtime. They also tend to allow us to look to God in our hearts. Maybe it's the lack of sensory stimuli at 3 AM that makes us more sensitive to that still, small Voice. Maybe it's the temporary overload that stops our senses in their tracks at the beauty of the gently glowing sky, opening our spirits to even greater Greatness.

What was your last moment of sunrise revelation?
